    How many of the Hull City faithful will travel to the midweek match? Will there be much of a presence? Just curious.

    42 quid to be surrounded on three sides by Ray Winstone types and an automated bubble-generator in some East London ****hole?

    **** that.

    In the early 90s I saw us play at West Ham but I left at half time, I think we lost 7-2 or something. We have a much better team now of course.

    It's a crap away at the best of times, but it's midweek, it's £42 and it looks even less attractive than normal.

    Its a pity the club couldnt throw in free coach travel. Very important game, win it and we are as good as safe. going to be a pretty poor turn out.

    Midweek, expensive tickets, **** ground for away fans, live on tv (isnt it?) and Wembley coming up - possibly twice - all point to hardly any travelling, so we're relying on London based fans showing up.

    I was at that game too. Was 7-1 I think. Iain Hesford's finest hour.

    Really? I was sure it was announced and we were all saying we couldn't believe how often we were on nowadays.

    It's always been the Boleyn Ground but it has been fashionable to use Upton Park until recently.

    I don't know why.

    After their performance on Saturday against Man U when they looked like headless chickens it's rather apt I would say...

    I also was at that game. I'm sure it was 1-1 at half time?? So Why would you leave at half time ?

    It definitely wasnt 1-1 (unless my memory is awful), or I left during the second half, but I'm pretty sure it was halfway. I probably left at 4 nil or so.
